Welcome to our latest version of Miskatonic University which we have named “Miskatonic 4.0″. Miskatonic University has been online since 1996 and with each passing age of internet standards, Miskatonic evolves. You are currently browsing the latest version of Miskatonic University which has features and a foundation that’s very different from anything we’ve had before.
New features for Miskatonic 4.0:
- Members have icons/images
- Password features available
- Consolidated News Area
- Better User Experience
- Elegant early Americana theme
- New Submissions area: Expeditions, Classes, Departments
- New Class descriptions. We have re-written all the copy for our classes in order to best fit an early 1920′s theme.
- New Volunteer efforts
- Lovecraft Book Fund
Best of all – anyone can join Miskatonic University for free. Early versions of Miskatonic allowed members to join the site only as Alumni, Faculty and Trustee where as now we have a new status – Student. By joining Miskatonic University, you join as a Student for free. If you wish to see yourself listed as an Alumni or more and would like a printed certificate of your career at Miskatonic, then that’s when you pay.

It’s because of you this website is free and google-ad free.
It’s because of wonderful fans like you that we can offer so great a website resource as Miskatonic University. Our early patrons contributed to make MIskatonic what it is today. All the money that has been paid to Miskatonic for membership and the commemorative diplomas and products has been re-invested in this website as an artistic outlet to fellow Lovecraft fans. Miskatonic University has grown as a resource for years and we’ll continue adding more yearly to make this a wonderful little niche of the internet dedicated to Lovecraft’s vision and work.
